Ran 5 miles easy, 9:35 pace.
Was going to start some interval training (2 mile warm up, 8×800’s + 200m jog in between, 1 mile cooldown). 1.5 miles into my warm up, I realized that I’m supposed to take it easy until I get new shoes (and probably my orthotics). Damn.
After my run, I went to dinner with Kyle and my mom.
Cross training with Jillian Michaels.
I got to try out my new workout gear that I won from Monica last year (there was a shipping SNAFU and I didn’t receive it until this week haha).
I posted that pic making fun of my thunder thighs. I got a bunch of supportive comments, and I realized they were all right! They may not be the long and lean thighs that I always wanted. BUT They are strong thighs. They made me a powerful tumbler back when I did gymnastics. They made me good at kung-fu. They allow me to run 13.1 miles. They are my RUNder thighs (thanks Mike for that term).
Followed by a delicious dinner brought to me by Whole Foods (I had other stuff too, but this was the only one that photographed well).
Oh and Kyle had forgotten his phone at home that day, so obviously I sent him random photos for when he got back. I asked him which was the front and back of my head. Not my best work.
Ran 6 miles easy + 5×20 sec sprints after each mile.
This yard/house has always creeped me out (since I was young). They have weird fake zoo animals and Native American statues (looking very Disney Jungle Cruise-esque) in their yard.
And because some of you seemed interested in my girl Shanna and her acro, here’s a video from a few years back. She’s the tallest one.
What’s a body part you were/are self conscious about, but realized that it is a wonderful part of you?
Spot any creepy things on your runs?
